Yeshi didnt meet the OT requirements of the Messiah.
See here youngling:
Yeshi Did Not Fulfill the Messianic Prophecies.
Specifically, the Bible says he will:
* Build the Third Temple (Ezekiel 37:26-28).
Gather all Jews back to the Land of Israel (Isaiah 43:5-6).
* Usher in an era of world peace, and end all hatred, oppression, suffering and disease. As it says: "Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall man learn war anymore." (Isaiah 2:4)
* Spread universal knowledge of the God of Israel, which will unite humanity as one. As it says: "God will be King over all the world – on that day,
God will be One and His Name will be One" (Zechariah 14:9).
Yeshi Did Not Embody the Personal Qualifications of Messiah
Messiah as Prophet
The Messiah will become the greatest prophet in history, second only to Moses. (Targum – Isaiah 11:2; Maimonides – Teshuva 9:2)
Prophecy can only exist in Israel when the land is inhabited by a majority of world Jewry, a situation which has not existed since 300 BCE. During the
time of Ezra, when the majority of Jews remained in Babylon, prophecy ended upon the death of the last prophets – Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi.
Yeshi appeared on the scene approximately 350 years after prophecy had ended, and thus could not be a prophet.
The Messiah will lead the Jewish people to full Torah observance. The Torah states that all mitzvot remain binding forever, and anyone coming to
change the Torah is immediately identified as a false prophet. (Deut. 13:1-4)
Throughout the Christian "New Testament," Yeshi contradicts the Torah and states that its commandments are no longer applicable. For example, John
9:14 records that Jesus made a paste in violation of Shabbat, which caused the Pharisees to say (verse 16), "He does not observe Shabbat!"
But then Padawan you ignore the OT and 99.9% of Yeshi's views and cherry pick what you want.
How intellectually dishonest of you Padawan.
